I have to ask what is your view on on Gen 1 (the days of creation) Vs. Gen 2 (the creation of Eden and Adam)?
Some argue that Gen 2 is on the sixth day, but when Adam and his family are expelled from Eden and Cain kills his brother, there are people outside of Eden. In fact there are enough people that Cain has a city built east of Eden in the land of Nod. This would imply that Eden's and Adam's creation occur after the events of Gen 1.
In addition to this the Serpent of the garden is called a "creature" formed of the dust of the ground in Genesis. It is said to be the most cunning creature of the Paradise. No where does it say this creature is an angel or spirit.
Instead it describes a creature more cunning than man, whose seed and humanity's seed shall always have enmity.
Also note the "Serpents", though cursed, were never expelled from Paradise like humanity.

Not to derail this thread and pardon my really dumb question here but where (if at all) do UFOs and ET fit into the picture you are presenting?

I heard somewhere...that if you rewind the clock, "humans" actually come to a population of just a few about 10,000 years ago!
I highly doubt the earth is less than that in age, though it really could be, already created "aged" that is, how would we know otherwise?
Its funny how this thread hasn't been hit with the "haters" and "name callers" yet, I love it!
This is how all threads should be like, discussing the topic, and not the members.
So the L-RD G-D said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, "Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals!
But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.
The Angel of the L-RD said to him, "Why have you struck your donkey these three times? Behold, I have come out as an adversary (satan in the Hebrew), because your way was contrary to me.
